Description The new translation monograph offers several Czech translations of Latin treatises of Jan Hus. As a continuation of an earlier volume (Master Jan Hus in polemicising and lecturing, 2015) it brings Czech translations of two polemical writings of the Czech reformer as well as other minor treatises that Hus wrote while he was imprisoned in Constance. Two of these were already translated into early modern Czech and the book presents these older translations in a form of readers’ edition. Moreover, the volume contains a critical tract against polyphony in church music (where Hus’s authorship is doubtful) and translations of poems written in Hus’s honour in the 16th century.
